Last update          12-19-2016. I was thinking of migrating toward a new database. Please check the new woman database here and let me know what you think about it at  nick_couk(at)yahoo.com.

 

To search for a player or a tournament, use the "search" button within the women database or the men database directly (not the one at the top of this page).
